Description Matan Ziv-Av (reporter) 2010-02-14 14:07:58 UTC
With the attached patch, hildon-desktop emits a dbus signal when a key is
pressed while the window list is showing (after pressing home key or clicking
the window list button.

This allows a daemon listening on the dbus to implement "home" key followed by
another key as a short cut for executing any action - launch an application,
run a script, etc.

Hi Matan, does this also apply for Maemo5?
Asking because for official Maemo4 this is a WONTFIX (that's why the
"community-diablo" keyword has been set here, to not overview this once we have
non-official Maemo4 updates...)
Comment 3 Matan Ziv-Av (reporter) 2010-03-11 15:45:41 UTC
In Fremantle, hildon-desktop is even less keyboard friendly, so I have a more
extensive patch, which adds this functionality among others. Its current state
is described here:
I already linked the patch to bug 6394.

Ah, nice. Thanks!
Closing this ticket as WONTFIX for Maemo4 in order to reflect reality.

I opened this bug as a result of this discussion:
http://talk.maemo.org/showpost.php?p=525825&postcount=98 , so I am not sure
this is the right resoultion. Perhaps a version or a target milestone for
diablo-community needs to be added?
Comment 6 Andre Klapper maemo.org 2010-03-11 17:10:33 UTC
It's exactly as written in that talk.maemo.org posting. Everything fine.
